Have We No Dignity AT ALL? Bristol Palin... Teen Pregnancy Prevention... Yep. I Really Like The Song "Unforgiven"... I Do...

["Bristol Palin Paid $262k For Abstinence Ads"; "The Young Turks" (TYT);]

Copied and Pasted:

"In 2009, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol joined a teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit called the Candie’s Foundation. Today, the Associated Press reported that the Candie’s Foundation released its 2009 tax information, revealing that Bristol was paid a salary of $262,500.

But a closer examination of the tax form by ThinkProgress shows that the group disbursed only $35,000 in grants to actual teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics: $25,000 to the Mt. Sinai Adolescent Health Center and $10,000 to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. View a screenshot of Bristol’s exorbitant salary below..."

Commentary: As a former teen parent that worked in teen pregnancy prevention services, I made approximately $30,000 a year. Is there a benefit to having a former teen parent speak out on teen pregnancy prevention. Absolutely. It is tough! But is it tough when you have megabucks coming your way? When you can afford high quality child care? When you are basically raping (financially... my opionion) the American public?

I Think NOT.
